My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


A Good Idea

The President announced plans for a massive re-deployment of American troops over the next ten years.

Downsizing in Europe and Asia. . .good. One can only hope that there will be a large and painful effect on the economies of our soft "allies."

The only thing that would be better, in my view, is a shifting of those same forces to places like Poland, Australia and Yemen.

I don't want to sound too vindictive here towards Germany and South Korea, but those who chose to stand with us when we called should be the ones who benefit most from our largesse. To continue quartering troops, providing huge economic benefits, not to mention the strategic importance of an American presence, in places which would not answer the call seems like folly.
